#WOTR #Spotlight – Pauline Allan @PaulineAllan

Pauline Allan

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Hi! I’m Pauline Allan and I love to write about boys kissing boys. I live in Indiana, but my heart dwells in the heart of the South. I visit New Orleans a couple times a year to recharge my creative battery and eat some amazing food! I volunteer at the Pride Community Center in Spencer, Indiana where we champion diversity and all things fabulous. I love to meet and talk to readers and other writers and have a wicked, um…demented, sense of humor. I’m a special care nursery newborn nurse and you can always find me locked in my office listening to music and clicking away on the keyboard.

When and Why did you start to write?

I started writing at nine years old when I created a newspaper to feature the comings and goings of my family. I started writing short stories in junior high school and focused on the thriller/horror genre. College brought new experiences and in my sophomore year I wrote a full length ménage fantasy romance. In a spiral bound notebook! By hand! Then hung up my writing brain for a bit. I came back full force in 2012 with a book that was contracted with Loose Id. I’ve always used writing as therapy. My brain is a little crazy and if I don’t write…I can’t breathe.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Edgar Allan Poe. He’s the master of romance. I know! That’s not right. He’s a horror writer. Yeah, I know, but his prose and poetry sing of lost loves and hearts steeped in sappy love affairs. I would also recommend Megan Hart, Lissa Matthews, Cara Bristol, Eli Easton, JA Rock, Charlotte Featherstone, Lisa Kleypas, Anyta Sunday, Charlotte Stein, and Mina Carter.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

If you put yourself out there they will come. The readers are so overwhelmingly supportive!

What are you working on now?

The third book in The Tattered Social Club Series. Safeword is a MM BDSM book focused on Seth and Jordan. I’ve also started the first book in the Stars Collide Series. Broken Pieces is a MM Romance New Adult.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I’m a plantser. So, I do both. I have a rough outline and the story changes as I write.

#WOTR #RegencyRomance #Historical #Review – Regency Romance, The Mistress Enchants Her Marquis by Christina McKnight, book 2 in the Craven House series.

Title: The Mistress Enchants Her Marquis

Series: Craven House (Book Two)

Author: Christina McKnight

Genre: Historical Romance, Regency

Release Date: February 21, 2017

COURTSHIP WAS NEVER SO SCANDALOUS

The grandson of an unconventional marquis and son of a notorious woman, Elijah Watson, Marquis of Ridgefeld, has spent most of his life outside of London. His atypical upbringing has left him longing for roots and a traditional family life, and he’s determined to live his life above reproach. When he meets Miss Samantha Pengarden, he believes he’s found the woman he wants to marry—except she has other far more sensual ideas for him.

 Known throughout the ton as the illegitimate rebellious daughter of London’s disreputable Craven House Madame, Samantha has never had to face the world without her shy twin by her side—until now. Her sister’s marriage and the return of her blackguard father leaves her alone and adrift. When Elijah agrees to escort her to the town’s most infamous establishments, she thinks she’s finally found a man with a taste for scandal and a knowledge of matters of the flesh.

But she never counted on Elijah being so honorable. When Samantha is listed as the mistress of the Marquis of Ridgefeld in White’s betting book, her reputation is in ruins—and only Elijah can save her. Can two total opposites come together for a love certain to last a lifetime?

 

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I must admit I was a huge fan of Jude and Simon’s book.  So when I saw Jude’s sister, Sam, was next I couldn’t wait to see her settle down.  She was the wilder of the two twins that is for sure.

When we meet Samantha, she is lost and lonely.  Her sister and confidant is getting married and her slimly father decided to come into her life after abandoning her mother and them.  Sam is a mess when she meets Elijah.  She decides to use him as a distraction to her life and misery.  Little does she know that Eli understand everything she is talking about because he too has lived through it.

When people get in the way of the couple, Eli is forced to leave but is still thinking about Sam.  She is furious because yet again someone has let her down.  When Eli returns to society, Sam is bound and determined to make him pay for hurting her.

As Sam pushes Eli further and further, he openly agrees because he is so in love with her he can’t not follow her through any scheme she as planned.  When Eli makes a discover about Sam of the scandalous variety he goes a bit alpha in protecting her…who doesn’t like a hot alpha right!!??

The couple have a lot to overcome with Sam mainly afraid to admit her real feelings for Eli. Her heart is so guarded a few times I wanted to hit her over the head with a lady’s fan to get her to SEE Eli for the amazing and understand guy he was.  The couple must overcome Sam’s new “reputation” and that of her mother Madam Sasha to try and see if a match is possible.

#Review #TwinsieForTheDayBecky – Second Debt (Indebted book #3) by Pepper Winters

23489258

“I tried to play a game. I tried to wield deceit as perfectly as the Hawks. But when I thought I was winning, I wasn’t. Jethro isn’t what he seems—he’s the master of duplicity. However, I refuse to let him annihilate me further.”

Nila Weaver has grown from naïve seamstress to full-blown fighter. Every humdrum object is her arsenal, and sex…sex is her greatest weapon of all.

She’s paid the First Debt. She’ll probably pay more.

But she has no intention of letting the Hawks win.

Jethro Hawk has found more than a worthy adversary in Nila—he’s found the woman who could destroy him. There’s a fine line between hatred and love, and an even finer path between fear and respect.

The fate of his house rests on his shoulders, but no matter how much ice lives inside his heart, Nila flames too bright to be extinguished.

Review by Becky:

Son of a bitch! Hot, Hot Hot!!!!  Jethro, my man, shove that hot poker up Cut’s ass!  You finally know for sure that Jethro is Kite and Nila loves Jethro.  Nila also gets to meet Jethro’s sister, Jasmine.  Jasmine has tried to help Jethro keep the ice walls in tact until he reaches his 30th birthday.  Jethro is struggling.  The sex is hot and Jethro finds it difficult to keep the ice walls up when Nila is around.
I would have never through that the development of Jethro and Nila would survive a third book.  It does and it is not over yet.  The only way Jethro can try to keep the walls up is to stay away from Nila.  Nila has tasted the Jethro sex machine and can’t get enough, feeling lost and empty when he is not around.
After staying away, Cut takes matters in his own hands.  He sees that Jethro is weakening.  Cut pushes Jethro to extract the second debt repayment……a dunking stool.  Nila is told by Kes to not fight and let her mind wander to survive.  They will not let her die.  The second debt extraction brings a Hawk audience to make sure Jethro extracts as history dictates.  He does…except, Nila gives up as her lungs fill with water…..Jethro brings her back to life and takes her to the hot pool in the cavern to warm her.  Even though Nila’s body was abused through the debt repayment, it didn’t stop the body desires of both.  During that time, Jethro promises to tell Nila everything and allow her to really see him…not the him he has to pretend to be.
The Hawks dealings has all sorts of law enforcement and policital people in their pockets allowing them to continue with their diamond business.
Somehow.….someone.….wasn’t following the rules.  A warrant was served on the Hawks for Nila’s release.  Book 3 ends with Nila leaving the Hawk complex….leaving Jethro behind….and the words of the family matriarch, Bonnie, telling Nila one life for another.  What does the future hold for Jethro now that Nila was released….she is still wearing the diamond collar and the JKH tallies…..
Gotta get into book 4 now.  I just have to find out what the hell is going to happen next!!!!

#WOTR #Review – Dare to Dream, Carolina Beach Book #1 by CA Harms

Dare to Dream (Carolina Beach, #1)

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

After the sudden death of his wife two years ago, Darren Griffin has finally found peace. He has a good life, good job, two daughters he’d do anything for, and a beautiful home on the beach.
Greer Monroe is grieving the loss of her father. It’s the final rung on the broken ladder that’s become her life—crappy job, no friends, and a cheating ex-boyfriend. At the insistence of her aunt, Greer decides to spend some time at her family’s beach house.
When the glee-filled sound of children’s laughter dances through the breeze, Greer finds herself smiling again. The neighbor girls are carefree, depicting a life Greer has only dreamed about. Husband, children, happiness—a family. And their father, Darren, he’s everything a woman could ever want.
But it is, of course, only a dream.
She can’t stay at Carolina Beach, no matter how much she adores Darren and his daughters. She has responsibilities at home, a mother who needs her. Where there’s love, there’s heartbreak, and she can’t go through that again. And she sure as hell won’t do that to those little girls.
But Darren isn’t letting her go that easily. It’s been so long since he’s felt this way for anyone. Greer is his missing piece, a piece he never thought he’d find.
Saying goodbye is hard, but sometimes starting over is even harder.
Only when they dare to dream again, will they ever dare to love.

I bought this book.

So I have had the privileged to meet this amazing author and I have only read one book when she first published.  Being a blogger it’s tough to start reading books one they are in the middle of a series so I have let a lot of her books go.  When I saw she started a new series, I jumped.  But seriously CA, hit me over the head girl for letting you slip so many books past me….

So our girl Greer….worst day EVER!!  Her father dies unexpectant and she goes to seek comfort from her boyfriend to find him with one of his many ex conquests.  After a few weeks of just walking numbly through life, her mom and aunt tell her to go.  Go far far away to the family vacation home to regroup and re-center her life.  Figure out what she wants/needs from life.   The first day in her new reality she sees her dream…..a loving man with his 2 daughters.  She can remember her life with her father and then remembers the hurt that she thought she might have that with her ex.

Darren sees the stranger and is curious about her as are his daughters.  They want to know about the pretty princess that lives behind their house.  The couple play some stalkery type stuff trying to learn about the other when Darren just kinda calls her out on it and they go out on a date.

Once the couple begin to date, the chemistry and connection is clear as day.  They are both drawn to each other and his daughters love love love Greer as she is as much in love with them.  As the book goes on, they know there is a time limit and theybegin to wonder what the other is feeling and what will happen WHEN her time ends at the beach house.

I liked the story and I loved the girls.  I loved the girls talking to Greer’s ex on the phone.  That scene cracked me up.  I know some people will think this is an insta-love story and in a way it might be but they both have been through the same situation that their quick bond is legit to me at least.  Also can I say Greer and Darren’s family scenes….HILARIOUS!!!!!

So yeah Smiley, I won’t be letting your books pass me by anymore!!

 

A little about me. Let’s see where to start.
I love HEA stories, as long as they come packing a little heat. I need some excitement, some angst, and moments that make me fan my face are always good too. I am an Illinois girl, born and raised. Simple and true, it honestly doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love the little things; they truly mean the most. I may have a slight addiction to my new Keurig—oh my, that thing is a godsend. And so fast too. I have two children who truly are my very best friends, and their faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have been married to my husband for sixteen years, and even though at times I want to beat him with a stick, I would never change the years we have had. We have learned and fallen, only to pick each other up, dust off the ache, and help each other make it right.
I am one of those authors that adore my fans. I love to hear from you. After all, it is because of each one of you that I continue to write. I look forward to your feedback.
Be sure to follow me to stay up-to-date on all my upcoming releases.

 

#Review #TwinsieForTheDayBecky – First Debt (Indebted Book 2) by Pepper Winters

22855494

“You say I’ll never own you. If I win—you willingly give me that right. You sign not only the debt agreement, but another—one that makes me your master until your last breath is taken. You do that, and I’ll give you this.”

Nila Weaver’s family is indebted. Stolen, taken, and bound not by monsters but by an agreement written over six hundred years ago, she has no way out.

She belongs to Jethro as much as she denies it.

Jethro Hawk’s patience is running out. His inheritance gift tests, challenges, and surprises him—and not in good ways. He hasn’t leashed her but he thinks he might’ve found a way to bind her forever.

Debts are mounting. Payment waiting.

 

Goodreads

Amazon US

Review by Becky:

Book two jumps right into the first debt.  Jethro’s ice walls, cracks and he didn’t quite perform the first debt repayment as history dictated.  However, he completed the payment. What the hell….damn those Hawks are freaking crazy.  Someone needs to just bury them.  Nila survived the first repayment and the connection between Nila and Jethro continues to deepen.
Jethro has his own demons that he is trying to deal with and finds receiving pain would help him refreeze the cracked ice walls. Although Nila is Jethro’s possession, she is the freedom to wander the Hawk estate….is privy to business conversations.  Hell, it’s not like she is going anywhere….after all the only way to lose the diamond collar is by her death…which will be at the hands of Jethro for the final debt repayment.
Nila continues to grow up and become a strong woman….even though she is failing for her capture.  Jethro struggles to perform as dictated by history and his father is watching every so closely.  Hot freakin’ damn the two of these characters…..sizzle, sizzle, sizzle!
How the Hawks have extracted debt repayment in all the years past is just freaking spooky. Pepper definitely writes for you to hate Jethro’s father, Cut.  
Book 2 continues to keep you turning pages!

#AuthorSpotlight – The Pink Rose of the Prairie by @GingerRings

pink-rose-of-the-prairie-cover

Rose McAlister was always the perfect daughter and student, but it was never enough for her high society family. Tired of the big city spotlight, Rose accepts a teaching job at the most remote location hiring – in the middle of the prairie in South Dakota. This was her chance for adventure, her opportunity to shine as an educator, and her shot at forgetting the ex-boyfriend who left her heart torn to pieces and her bank account in shambles. In South Dakota, Rose vows she’ll find someone to love and trust.
Seth Peterson is a wanderer. Not surprising since he didn’t know where he was going or where he came from. When a beautiful, flower-tattooed woman enters his life claiming to be from the future, he doesn’t know which is crazier: her, or the fact that he is falling in love and wanting to put down roots. Before he can decide if it’s best to follow his aimless path or to obey his heart, women are being stabbed to death in town and it looks like Rose might be next on the killer’s list. Can this new love survive not only the slash of steel, but also the test of time?

Excerpt:
“You don’t believe me, do you?”

“Nope.” The guy sure stayed in character well. That’s for sure. Her teeth rattled with the bounce of the trot.

“Stop.” Rose screamed and the horse halted.

“What’s wrong?”

“You may be used to riding around on a horse but my legs are about rubbed raw and all this bouncing is going to shake a tooth loose.” She hated to complain but the stress of not knowing where she was, and Peterson’s insistence that he lived in the 1800’s was starting to get on her nerves. “Plus you’re freaking me out with this old west stuff. How far are we from Harvest?”

He pointed in the distance. “You can just see the edge of town.” Peterson clicked his mouth and Kadoka started toward town.

Relief and despair hit at the same time. She was glad to see Harvest but hated to admit her time with Seth Peterson, if that was his real name, was ending soon. Rose circled her arms around his waist and held on tight. He gave her hand a gentle squeeze and her heart skipped a beat. With her luck, some member of the school board would probably be the first person they ran into. That’s all she needed.

A gasp escaped her lips as the town got larger with every step of the horse’s hooves. It was like a movie set. Everyone was dressed in old fashion attire just like him. There were horses and wagons and no signs of the twenty first century anywhere. This couldn’t be Harvest. Even with the heat, she was chilled.

“Don’t worry, I won’t leave you alone.” His reassurance both frightened and comforted her.

“Why is everyone starring at us?” Her arms hugged him tighter.

“Because you’re half naked.” His husky laugh made her tingle.

“What? I am not.” Feminine giggling caught her attention and she looked up at a group of colorful ladies lounging on a deck above. “But those ladies have less on than I do.”

“That’s a whorehouse.” He released her hands from around his waist as they stopped in front of a light green building. The overhead sign proclaimed it Brink’s Dry Goods and General Store. “Let me do the talking. I don’t want anyone thinking you’re crazy. I’ll see if anyone has found your horse.” His voice low so only she could hear.

“I told you I don’t have a horse, I’m looking for my car,” she whispered back.

“That’s exactly what I mean. You start flapping your mouth about cars and a cell with a phone, whatever the hell that is, not to mention claiming Hickok being dead.” He flung his leg across the horse’s neck and jumped down. “They’ll be wanting to lock you up for the night.”

Goodreads

Review by Becky:

I was warned that Pepper’s books were dark but this book was not as dark as others she writes.  So, I gave it a try.
Nila….such a gifted designer.  Had the fashion world by the ass and had a successful show.  She worked tirelessly and had not time for men.  Not that her father or twin brother would have allowed any man to date Nila. Nila was sexually deprived.  She was brought to life through text messages from Kite. Both parties were able to hide behind text messages.  Nila grew up thinking that her mother abandoned her and her brother and father.  Nila’s life and she knew it came crashing down on her the night of her fashion show.  Jethro came to claim his possession….Nila.
Jethro was cold and heartless.  He was a product of his environment.  You could see cracks in his ice shell but those were quickly refroze.  Nila was his possession because of century old wrong doings of the Weavers to the Hawks.  
What Jethro didn’t expect to get was a spit-fire in Nila.  Jethro’s father was an ass….dark and evil.  Nila was humiliated by being the tasted treat of the rest of Jethro’s “brethren”.  No where was off limits for poor Nila.
The chemistry between Jethro and Nila is unmistakable.  Her horrific situation and realization that her mother didn’t abandon her and that she would suffer the same historic path as her mother was heartbreaking.  
I quickly finished this book and Pepper’s writing is awesome.  I wanted to find out what the debts were and how they would be paid.  This book lays the groundwork of the connection between the two families.  I wanted to continue to read how Nila and Jethro grow and quickly jumped right into book 2.  When I start to get creeped out on how Jethro and his family treats Nila and her past relatives, I just tell myself it is just great writing!

EXCERPT


The first rays of the morning sun filtered through the curtains and fell on the beauty that lay beside Mataus.

Bathed in the light she glistened like an angel, her blonde tresses a golden halo surrounding alabaster skin, so soft and smooth it begged for his touch. Pale blonde lashes caressed her cheeks in sleep and her plump pink lips were slightly parted. Mataus leaned down to brush his lips to hers, but before he could taste the sweetness of her mouth he found himself standing in the dark. He was in the country. The smell of hay and horses permeated the air. No moon lit the sky, only a sprinkling of stars. In the faint light he could make out the shape of a barn and a house in the distance, fenced pastures and a gravel drive.

Mataus walked along the gravel road toward the house. A sense of foreboding clawed at his aura. As he grew closer, the outline of a large truck parked in the driveway came into view. A shadow crept around the vehicle.

Evil, a hatred so pure it almost brought him to his knees shot to his mind. An explosion. Flames. A maniacal laugh.

Mataus woke with a start. Sweat drenched his body. For three nights now he had dreamed of the angel in his bed, but this was the first time he had sensed danger surrounding her. Fuck! He threw the covers off and sat on the edge of the bed, swiping his hands down his face.

He needed a shower to think. Heaving himself off the bed he staggered to the bathroom and turned the spray on as hot as he could stand it. As the pounding water eased his taut muscles flashes of his dream ran through his head. He closed his eyes and the woman appeared in front of him, so vibrant and real, he wanted to reach out and touch her. In his heart, he knew she was the key. The missing essence that would blend with his aura and complete his soul.

Switching off the water, Mataus scrubbed a towel over his skin and walked to the sink. Naked, he ran the electric razor over his face, brushing his teeth at the same time. A heavy swipe of deodorant, to combat the New Orleans heat, then a splash of cologne and he was set for the day.

Sauntering into the bedroom he threw on a pair of well-worn jeans and a T-shirt that said, You’re never too old to have invisible friends. Barefoot, he headed for the kitchen and some chicory coffee and a beignet.

As soon as Mataus had a little caffeine in his system he knew what he needed to do. He had to call his cousin Harley.

#Review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – Fake Fiancé By: Ilsa Madden-Mills

Fake Fiancée

A new standalone romance from Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills…

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss…that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he’d never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist…
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t REAL.

Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Get ready for breathtaking kisses, dreamy football players, a heroine who yearns for the guy she can’t have, and a hero who will do anything for the girl he loves…

Review by Jordan

Amazing!!! I’m not an avid reader of Ilsa’s, but I seriously could NOT put down this book. Max and Sunny are complete opposites and maybe that is what makes this book so interesting, or maybe it’s that fate intertwined these two from the get go. The characters all had their own personalities that jumped off the pages. From the girl everyone wants to hate to the best friend who you wish was your best friend. It was a great read that I’m sure you won’t regret.

When she’s not pecking away on her computer, she shops for cool magnets and fuzzy pajamas.
